I love to explore all varieties of movement and fitness, and over the years it's been anything from triathlons to obstacle races to power lifting, and currently CrossFit.
I've come to absolutely love heavy lifting and utilize it as the foundation of my own fitness, but there's also nothing I love more than a good, hard conditioning session to kick my butt in gear. I thrive off of physical challenges, conquering myself mentally and learning to control and own my mind and body a little more every day.
Fitness and wellness is my passion. my lifestyle, and my privilege, and an outlet for my drive and competitive nature. But more importantly, it's the gift I'm blessed to be able to pass along to everyone I have the joy of training.
In 2003, I came to Missouri to attend Evangel University, where I learned many lessons on and off the football field. After graduating, I spent the next 8 years training athletes to be the best they can be. I also spent many hours helping hard-working everyday citizens reach fitness goals that they never knew where possible for them.
I have so much passion for helping people on their journey to a healthier life! Nothing is easy, but together I know we can make it happen. I am very excited to be a part of the great staff at AYB, where it will be an amazing community!
In her free time, she grows vegetables in her garden, runs with her black lab, swims, and enjoys time outside with her family. She loves cooking for her hungry husband and two daughters. One of her goals is to make the world’s best muffin. If you are lucky, you may get a sample at AYB when she tries a new recipe!
With a client centered approach, she feels it is important to get to know each of her clients and help them to determine how they can be successful. In her free time, she loves to hang out with her fiancé and dogs (Glen and Gary), run/lift, go down to Table Rock Lake, try different restaurants and watch the Chicago Bears and St. Louis Blues!
